    It's not fair not to have a Christmas party The first sentence is not correct. – Man_From_India Jan 7 '15 at 9:45

    Neither of the sentences are correct, because they don't have the indeterminate article, and they both end in a question mark. The 2 sentences are affirmations. – Mari-Lou A Dec 23 '16 at 20:07

The first one sounds like "it is not necessary" for me. I would use the second case. This is just my opinion, since English is not my native language.
